When you book an ATOL protected holiday, you should be given an ATOL Certificate by your travel business as soon as you pay over any money for the holiday - even if this is only a deposit.

Your ATOL Certificate is proof that the holiday you have booked is protected by the ATOL scheme. It will tell you:

  • What’s protected by ATOL
  • Who’s covered
  • Who is providing this protection (the travel business's name and ATOL number)

Your ATOL Certificate will also tell you what to do if your travel business stops operating. Read the full terms of the Air Travel Trust Payment Policy.

Keep your ATOL Certificate somewhere safe and take it on holiday so you know how to make an ATOL claim if you need to.

There are three kinds of ATOL Certificate:

For trips sold on or after 1 July 2018

For trips sold up to midnight 30 June 2018
